The biggest Marvel news to come out of Super Bowl LIII was, of course, the new TV spot for Avengers: Endgame that aired during the game. While many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe busied themselves scouring the 30-second promo for clues about the upcoming sequel, others couldn't help but draw a connection between victorious New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and a certain Mad Titan.
Although they don't exactly compare to the power of the Infinity Stones, Brady's six Super Bowl rings undeniably hold an allure. As such, The Sixth Sigma reimagined the quarterback as Thanos in an Infinity War mashup that's, well, pretty spot-on.
The video uses the scene from the 2018 blockbuster in which Thanos places the Mind Stone -- the final Infinity Stone he collects --into the Infinity Gauntlet in Wakanda. In the parody, however, Brady's face replaces the motion-capture visage of actor Josh Brolin, and the Super Bowl rings are swapped in for the Infinity Stones.
All we can say is, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that our MCU heroes fare better against Thanos than the Los Angeles Rams did against Brady and the Patriots.
